Heinkel He-51; Grün Berta, Nord Eindringling Geschwader Keilschwanz. Tanami, Aryan Südreich. February 1940

Heinkel He-51 AS 001 by Fred Maillardet, on Flickr

The He 51s of the Wedgetail Northern Intruder Squadron, based at Tanami in the Aryan Südreich, carried out missions roaming across British North Australia at will until the advent of the Fairey Fulmar ended their dominance of the air.
The aircraft shown is finished in the red sand and scrub smoke ring scheme used by Aryan Südreich forces in the North of the country and carries their “fasces” markings (known to their opponents as ‘stumps’ for obvious reasons).

The Model.  Hasegawa 1/72 He-51 built box stock.  Painted with automotive red oxide primer and Vallejo acrylics.  Smoke rings are decals and like the stumps are home made.  Rigging is Ezi Line.

The He-51 is one of my all time favorite biplanes, the proportions look just right. Your decals look fantastic and the green looks good too. I really like it :thumbsup:.

BTW, i'd like to apologise if I have mangled the German language in any particularly embarrassing way.  Blame Goggle Translate.

impressive technique (I wouldn't be able) and
very beautiful patter!

(but ... where did the floats go?  ;) if there were any in the original kit?)

Maybe I wasn't clear?- the smoke rings are decals.  One large decal on the upper wing and smaller ones on the fuselage and horizontal tails.

The floats Eric, are on this.
